When 2 seconds lasts for 1 second...

By Paul_Iddon  
Time stands still, or travels at a different speed to reality? How deep is that for a thought?

Anyway, the reason for this is that I took a photo tonight of my wife's wristwatch and the exposure is TWO seconds long, but look at how the motion of the second finger is showing... It's ONE second.

So proof that 2 seconds lasts for 1 second. (Check the exif yourself if you want to, it's embedded in the image!)

No trickery, no photo-shopping, just a straight shot (converted from RAW of course).

I also like the colours (the face of the dial has a luminance built into it, a sort of pearly effect and the gold of the numbers and hands shows well too).

C&C as always.
